Internship at Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

From: Calvin Winner <c.winner>
Date: Tuesday, December 18, 2007
Advanced Internship in Conservation
The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
One year non-taxable bursary of UKP15,000
starting February 2008

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at UEA Norwich is offering a
one-year Advanced Internship in Conservation to a recent graduate of
a recognised conservation programme. The internship will combine
studio practice and research and will develop and broaden the
intern's knowledge and experience working alongside experienced
practitioners in the Sainsbury Centre's busy Conservation Studio.

Ideally, candidates will have a specialisation in paintings or three
dimensional objects and a specific interest in modern works of art.
The internship will focus on the UEA Collection of Abstract and
Constructivist art and it is hoped the project will help stimulate
contact and build relationships with comparable Collections both
nationally and internationally. This project will support current
research undertaken at the Sainsbury Centre on the conservation of
modern and contemporary works of art.

The intern will work under the supervision of the Sainsbury Centre's
Conservator and will also have the opportunity to work on projects
relating to the routine work of the Conservation Studio, linked to
exhibition and display programmes and preventive Conservation

The internship will start in February 2008 and the selected
candidate will be awarded a non-taxable bursary of UKP15,000 for the
year, payable quarterly in four equal instalments from the first
full month of the internship.

Closing date: Monday 21 January 2008.

Applications, outlining past experience along with a curriculum
vitae and the names of two referees, should be sent to
